NFL - Scoop Du Jour

Former New York Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress(notes) will be released from prison Monday after 20 months in the slammer for gun possession.

"This has been a bit of a roller coaster," said Peter M. Frankel, Burress' lawyer, according to the New York Daily News. Now the 33-year-old receiver is about to go on another bumpy ride while he sees which teams have any interest in signing him.

The National Football Post spoke "with people on five NFL teams that are in the market for wide receivers" and "none of them expressed an interest in signing Burress."

But the Daily News has it that Burress "is expected to be courted by a number of teams," such as the Philadelphia Eagles and St. Louis Rams.
